|Fine Art Since 1976
By Dianne Ellis
Dianne Ellis is a multi-media artist residing in Greensboro,
North Carolina. She works primarily in oil, watercolor, and
pastel. In addition to traditional canvas, ragpaper, and masonite,
gold leafed and hand carved antique wood panels present some
interesting surfaces for painting. Handmade papers collaged over
the painted surface add interest to some pieces.
Dianne received her BFA at Mercer University and continued
study at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She has
participated in numerous workshops and completed a class in
stained glass at the Community College in Rockingham, North
Dianne worked as an illustrator for educational material and
illustrated a children’s book which was included in the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's "Picture A Book" presentation.
Currently Dianne works in Greensboro painting portraits of
people, homes, and pets. She shows her work at several galleries
and renders sculpture designs for Metropolitan Galleries. She
particularly enjoys working with clients on unusual concepts and
challenging requests. The Leland Stanford Mansion Foundation,
in Sacramento, California contracted Dianne to help in their
historic restoration of sculptures in the mansion. She also worked
directly with Phyllis Madonna on the Alex Madonna Memorial
sculpture in San Luis Obispo, California which featured her late
husband Alex riding his favorite horse.
Please feel free to contact Dianne with your special requests or
interest in a specific painting. Thanks and hopefully you will enjoy
viewing some of her work.
